Jellyfish are on the Rise

"Global warming, pollution, and human activity in marine habitats are not generally regarded as good things," says Gerry Bellet at the Vancouver Sun — "unless you're a jellyfish." Overfishing is one reason the jellies are having their day: When less fish are present, there's less competition when it comes to finding food like plankton. It also means that "jellyfish have fewer encounters with the ocean-dwelling predators that deign to eat them, such as salmon," says Canada's National Post. - excerpt from article in The Week.
